At Invivo Hospitals in Bangalore, Robotic surgery, also known as robot-assisted surgery, is a type of minimally invasive surgical procedure in which a surgeon uses robotic systems to perform surgery with enhanced precision, control, and flexibility. The goal of robotic surgery is to overcome some of the limitations of traditional laparoscopic or open surgeries by providing surgeons with advanced tools and technology to perform complex procedures with improved accuracy and reduced invasiveness.
Robotic System: The robotic system consists of a surgical console where the surgeon sits and controls the robotic arms, and a patient-side cart that holds the robotic arms and surgical instruments. The surgeon’s hand movements are translated into precise movements of the robotic arms.
Robot Arms: These are mechanical arms equipped with surgical instruments and cameras that are inserted into the patient’s body through small incisions. These instruments can rotate and move in ways that human hands might find difficult, providing greater dexterity and range of motion.
Surgical Console: The surgeon sits at the console and uses hand controls and foot pedals to manipulate the robotic arms. The surgeon’s movements are translated into real-time movements of the robotic instruments.
3D Vision: Robotic surgery systems often provide 3D high-definition visualization, allowing the surgeon to see the surgical site in greater detail and depth perception compared to traditional 2D laparoscopic views.
Advanced Instrumentation: Robotic surgical instruments can mimic the movements of a surgeon’s hands with greater precision, filtering out hand tremors and providing fine control.
Teleoperation: In some cases, robotic surgery can enable teleoperation, where a surgeon located remotely can control the robotic system to perform surgery in a different location, which can be particularly useful for providing expert surgical care in remote or underserved areas.
Benefits of robotic surgery include:
Enhanced Precision: Robotic systems can provide greater precision due to their ability to filter out hand tremors and offer finer, more controlled movements.
Minimally Invasive: Robotic surgery typically involves smaller incisions compared to traditional open surgery, leading to reduced scarring, less pain, and faster recovery times for patients.
Reduced Blood Loss and Complications: The minimally invasive nature of robotic surgery can lead to reduced blood loss and lower risk of complications.
Shorter Hospital Stays: Patients who undergo robotic surgery often experience shorter hospital stays compared to traditional open surgery.
Quicker Recovery: Robotic surgery patients may experience quicker recovery times and return to their normal activities sooner.
Complex Procedures: Robotic surgery enables surgeons to perform intricate procedures with greater ease and precision, making it suitable for complex surgeries such as cardiac, urological, gynecological, and colorectal procedures.
Despite its advantages, robotic surgery also has some limitations and challenges, including the high cost of acquiring and maintaining robotic systems, the need for specialized training for surgeons, and potential technical difficulties during surgery.
